Contracts of Carriage by Land and Air


1. Contracting

A.1 Contracts of carriage are concluded like other types of contract. Customers, commonly the consignors or consignees of the goods to be moved, obtain a copy of a carrier’s transport document, consignment note or air waybill and send it with details of the service required to the carrier. Sending the note usually amounts in law to an offer to enter a contract of carriage as customer, an offer which the carrier may accept or reject. Acceptance may be express, or implied by conduct,1 such as loading goods sent forward on a vehicle going to the required destination.
